– Big brunch com­ing up

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier North Hat­ley

About seven or eight cit­i­zens at­tended the quiet coun­cil meet­ing that took place in North Hat­ley on March 7th. There have been no new de­vel­op­ments re­gard­ing the pos­si­ble erec­tion of a Bell cell­phone tower in town. “They ap­proached us about putting up a tower but we won’t be chas­ing them down to do it. Those cell tow­ers can be con­tro­ver­sial,” said North Hat­ley mayor Michael Page. A mo­tion was passed at the meet­ing for a new by-law to reg­u­late the town’s potable wa­ter sup­ply. The new by-law would re­strict the use of the wa­ter in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions, such as wa­ter­ing grass dur­ing a drought.

A new sec­re­tary-trea­surer has been hired fol­low­ing the step­ping down of Danielle Gau­vin who worked for the town for twenty years. Bruno Belisle, who pre­vi­ously worked for the City of Coat­i­cook, will re­place Ms. Gau­vin. Long­time North Hat­ley res­i­dent Mor­gan W. Quinn was rec­og­nized for his work on the town’s CCUP and Strate­gic Plan­ning com­mit­tees af­ter he re­tired from th­ese po­si­tions.

Noth­ing new was dis­cussed re­gard­ing the pos­si­ble de­vel­op­ment pro­ject. “We have a few more months of work be­fore we’ll have some­thing to present to the cit­i­zens,” said Mr. Page.

The North Hat­ley Recre­ation So­ci­ety’s an­nual brunch fundraiser is fast ap­proach­ing. The NHRS brunch is a home-cooked af­fair of pan­cakes, beans, sausages, eggs, muffins and lots more, all served up be­tween 8:00 am and noon at the North Hat­ley com­mu­nity cen­tre on Satur­day, March 19th. Spe­cial prices for fam­i­lies.
